Cry Room and Nursery
Parents of infants and small children are invited to use a cry room where they can still attend Mass with their little ones. It's located in the front of the church, if you go through the side door by the Baptismal font.
Children (up to but not including first grade) can use the nursery on Sunday mornings during the 10:00 A.M. Mass. There is no charge for the service. Parents may bring the children downstairs before Mass begins, and an adult will watch your children for you. For more info, call John Sondag at 612-729-7321.
